The Daily Pick

Daily Pick in Brazil. Daily Pick on NPR.

We've had a lot of Internet traffic on the Daily Pick the last couple days. One big source was Querido Leitor, a Brazilian Weblink website, and the other biggie was a word-of-mouth begun when our "George Bush Breaks Vacation Record" was featured around the web, and also on NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me.

(Thanks to Adam Johnson and Tom McNeely for making us aware of the NPR cite.)

I'm not sure why we ended up on Querido Leitor, but we appreciate it, and we appreciate the comments left by surfers. I don't know any Portuguese, so I had to use the Google Language Tools to figure out what was said. A few of the translations were very funny, and I've included them below. Their humor is reflective, obviously, of the translation, and not of the Portuguese language.

It pulls life, really is all guilt of the Bush. Today I beat with the foot in the bed and I ached very! There, as all Brazilian conscientious I cried out: "Bush %$#@*&! Is all guilt its!!!

We go to speak on furacao Katrina that frightens New Orleans and the outskirts at this accurate moment. This type of problem in Brazil is one gifts not terms here. 1 million of people ja had left the city, who loucura!!!Tambem the Bush naõa want to contribute, signing the treat o treat to Kioto and does not give nature to it and the proprio man suffers consequencias!!!Que God has misericordia...

Interesting... I liked it "Flying Spaghetti Monster"
